comment Is it possible to calculate the energy required to speak a word?
It may be more useful to consider the total amount of sound required to convey information. It has always seemed to me that Italian is particularly profligate. Example chosen at random: bread maker (English, 3 syllables); macchina per il pane (Italian, 7 syllables). But, of course, this isn't really a biology question.

If that is meant to be sucrose, that isn't the simplest sugar. Technically I think it would be glyceraldehyde (C3) which makes the task a little easier. If you want a cyclic molecule maybe ribose, C5.
